Event description

Description

Dia de Ciencias is a day long event where students will experience various STEM related workshops and hands-on activities while parents will undergo workshops that teach how to fund college and the benefits of higher education.




Registering online with this website is very important in helping us determine important logistics (food, volunteers, materials, workshops etc.). It is also crucial in placing students in the workshop cluster they are interested in! Please RSVP early! This online registration is to be completed by the entire family (one registration for the entire family attending).

(1) How do I RVSP for this event?

Use this EventBrite website you are currently on (https://tinyurl.com/diadeciencias) to register the entire family. Registration can also be done on April 14th at the door. The Google map to the Spanos Center is located on the side of this page. The University of the Pacific map is HERE.





FAQ, Frequently Asked Questions: WORKSHOPS

(1) What are the workshops for parents and guardians?

The parents/guardians of middle school students will have workshops concerning several topics relating to understanding the high school preparation needed for student pursuing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The speakers for the parents/guardians of high school students will focus on the college side of this topic. Parents/guardians will be seperated by middle school and high school. Our speakers from University of the Pacific and the Stockton community will provide seperate workshops in English and Spanish.


(2) What are the workshops for middle school and high school students?

Students will have the option of choosing an area of interest for this event. The four main areas (clusters) are listed below. In addition, there will be special clusters that will focus on a very specific career path- such as to become a pharmacist or a pilot.




Registering early helps us place students in their first-choice cluster.

Technology Cluster

Cluster #1: TECHNOLOGY

For this cluster, you will explore the devices developed by college students and professionals, and learn to make your own. We will be having electrical engineering professors explain electricity and magnetism to you with hands-on activities. You will also see how coding and engineering is involved in the field of technology.


Possible careers in this area:

Electrical Engineer

Computer Engineer

Computer Scientist

Life Science Cluster






Cluster #2: LIFE SCIENCE

The hands-on activities and demos in the life science cluster focus on helping you understand chemical reactions and terminology in biology to then apply it. If you are interested in the medical field, the body’s function and health-care devices, join this cluster and meet college students studying in this field!


Possible careers in this area:

Doctor

Pharmacist

Biomedical Engineer

Physical Therapist

Chemist

Lab Researcher

Engineering Design




Cluster #3: ENGINEERING DESIGN

What comes to mind when your hear about a cluster on engineering design? Do you think about structures, and how the environment is an important design factor? In this cluster, professors and college students will teach you how to create bridges to withstand an environmental challenge and show you how careful planning builds a community.


Possible careers in this area:

Civil Engineer

Environmental Engineer

Geoscientist

Architect


Physics Cluster




Cluster #4: PHYSICS

Physics, it’s all around you (the force Luke...CAN YOU FEEL IT?). It is the foundation of the interaction between objects which we can and cannot see. For every action there is a reaction, and an object in motion will remain in motion.In this cluster, students will explore the surprisingly simple principles, such as the ones mentioned above, behind the complex occurrences we see everyday.


Possible careers in this area:

Astronaut

Astrophysicist
